while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure this reservoir of inexpensive gas does not undercut the addition of renewables to our energy portfolio. solar, wind, geothermal. dership on these technologies for a balanced energy portfolio and ultimately to reduce our carbon footprint. at each step, we should be looking to enhance energy conservat

not realize this huge trade deficit we have. half of it historical has been energy products, mostly oil. if you get to the point where you are a self-sufficient producer -- i am glad you said north american energy independent. i always disliked the idea of this national energy independence. if you become energy self- sufficient, you eliminate half the trade deficit. this really changes the balance of payments and the overall shape and direction of the economy. could you speak to that? >> i for started talking about it two years ago. -- i first started talking about it two years ago. i started talking about what was possible with oil. i was a lone wolf in the woods at the time. since then, the bandwagon has loaded up. a lot of other people are saying, yes, it could happen, and it to be very important for america. particularly as it translates from energy to the general economy. there are more pillars' out there, housing, manufacturing -- they depend on recovery. the one that does not is energy, because the international demand is already there. it has been created by china, india. all ar

energy system. by the way, we can create jobs doing that. right now our republican friends, when you talk about want to do entilement reform, it's not entitlement reform. let's be clear. it's massive cuts in social security, medicare, veterans programs, medicaid. >> you know their argument is that you can't just raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us a balanced budget, revenue was about 20%. we have one out of four corporations, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in taxes in america. the effective corporate tax rate today is the lowest it's been since 1972. of course republicans want to cut social security, medicare, medicaid. but i think it is time for large corporations who are not paying a nickel in taxes to start paying their fair share.
of the denying quorum and in the case of speaking as long as you cou could, you had to spend time and energy, you had to organize and it was visible before this body. it was visible before the reporters gathered in the balcony. therefore, the american people, long before there was a television camera here, could see what you were doing and the public could provide feedback on that. but now we come to the modern era. from 1970 forward. in which it became popular to start using the objection as an instrument of party warfare, the objection to a final vote. you know, if we turn back before 1970, you had an overlap of the parties of perhaps 30 members. and so if one had used his objection, they'd have a good sense that you would be able to get cloture. furthermore, there was a social contract that you only interrupted the workings of this body on an issue of deep principle. you only blockaded the operations of the senate on an issue of profound concern to your state. not as a routine instrument of party politics. but that's changed over the last 45 years, since 1970 forward, the last 43 years, in whi
. and more powerful storms. the path toward sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. >> you'll recall with the exception of a single line in his dnc speech, our current state of climate peril was barely mentioned in the campaign. in fact, it was the first time in 24 years it was never raised at any of the debates. so, i was not the only commentator who was surprised to find such a passionate, lengthy passage in his speech. a speech, of course, is just that. often we have a tendency to overestimate just how much presidential rhetoric can accomplish. right after the speech the new york times ran an article with the headline, speech gives climate goal center stage. president obama masetting in motion what democrats say will be a deliberate pace, aggressive campaign built around use of executive powers to sidestep congressional opposition. libertarian author gene healey coined it cult of the, a quasi figure, directing the nation's attention and resources at a whim. and in the sphere of national security that is

obama is making a moral case on the issue of climate. do you see energy issues, climate issues, being tackled in this next congress? a realistic goal? guest: energy policy broadly absolutely has to be part of the discussion. climate change -- after the severe storms with sandy recently and other harbour tragedies, i think the science is definitely confirming the fact that climate change exists and that we have to do things more responsible about it. my focus is on renewable energy. we don't have oil companies in nevada, but what we do have is an abundance of wind, solar, and geothermal. and i believe that those are alternatives that should be part of our overall energy mix to make us less reliance on fossil fuels and more energy independent in the long term. host: philadelphia, pennsylvania. our next caller is richard, independent line. caller: how are you doing? how are you doing, congressman? the question -- a couple of thoughts. i am interested in what puc is the area that productivity will occur. as far as when you talk about job creation and you coming from nevada, looking at the

. the purpose would be, he wrote, to embarrass the administration, to destroy the energy of the government and to substitute the pleasure, caprice or artifices, to the regular decisions of a respectable majority. that's just what the republicans have been doing. since 2007 when they lost the majority in the senate, they mounted or threatened to mount nearly 400 filibusters, blocking everything from equal pay to equal work, job bills and reform. as a result, there are more vacancies on the federal courts today than when president obama first took office. but hold on. when democrats were in the minority and threatening to filibuster against george w. bush's judicial nominees, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they

're on the energy and resources committee also, we are continuing to send almost $400 billion a year overseas to buy oil, and your colleague senator lugar, for a long time has told us that the only way to beat a cartel is through competition and he sponsored what is called an open-fuel standard. to basically make a competitive market to move automobiles, trucks, whether it's electricity or ethanol or whatever, to have a market so that brazil, when you drive up to the pump you have a choice and the price goes down, we think. do you think that's a good idea? and with your colleague gone now and the loss to our country would you be support i have of the competitive way to break the opec cartel? >> i think the technology developments and -- has become that competitive. that is causing that to happen. we had the great fortune of this technology that breakthrough take is going to put us in a different position than we've been in the past. i don't think -- we have seen the effort to try to determine and development alternative competitive because the discovery of oil and gas through shale and shale and thr
high. your 401(k) is looking a lot better. domestic energy production is way up. if we build the pipeline and frack some more it will be up even more than that there are two sides in the argument. early in the game, our team is down or yes we are in the 7th inning and things are looking up as we head beyond the stretch. martha: here comes the part where stuart says, in my opinion, where are we, stuart? >> in my opinion we're still for the rest of this year going to bump along. i will give you a baseball analogy but we're bumping along the bottom. i think we'll get growth, maybe two, 2 1/2%, that mart, that is not good enough. we need four% for a consistent period of time to get our debt measureably under control. not going to get it. martha: tough to find the engines of growth when you look out there, stuart. >> could be energy, martha. martha: could be. thank you so much. good to talk to you as always, sir. bill: where i come from the 7th inning stretch means there are 2 1/2 innings of baseball to play and the other team can back and tie it up. martha: that's true. bill: i d
a different position than the administration does. i want to see energy resources developed in this country. to me this is an absolute no brainer. i know the environmental community wants to stop this because they he want to stop using oil and petrochemicals. the fact is not doing this pipeline is not going to affect that at all. this material, this oil is going to go to china if we don't put it into a pipeline and bring it in to america and tuesday to create jobs here in america and lower the cost of energy here in the united states. >> shannon: and the president walking a bit of a tight rope calls from environmentalists but calls from union members who want to see the pipeline approved. how do you think he will find that delicate balance and make a decision? >> it is hard to say except if you look at what he did last time he had to make the call sided not with the unions but with the environmentalists and i think he is wrong on that. the unions are absolutely right. this is job creation, pure unanswered questions adulterated job creation that will really help america's use of its natural
was just looking at the ceiling hoping my president would call. that's the kind of energy you have to put in. >> martin what about the republicans? let's talk about our party right now. you look at the numbers, not good. the president, the 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. we are a party that seems to be shrinking. how do we reverse that trend? >> well you spend enough time in the desert you find water. you lose enough you begin to sort of get some sanity. i think there's been some moves over the last couple of weeks that show that we're making some progress on this last budget deal looking forward. i think there's some progress. i think republicans are starting to show movement. we're making progress on the immigration front. i think there's something to be optimistic about. >> all right. let's try and be optimistic david gregory, while also being realistic. looking ahead to the next four years which really is the next two years, if you considered midterms, where it all potentially ends and the president's ability to get something d
